"Blood Highway"

Gina Wohlsdorf’s first novel, Security, was chosen as an Amazon Best Book of 2016.

She applied the Page 69 Test to her new novel, Blood Highway, and reported the following:
I’m not sure there’s a page in Blood Highway that represents the whole book — the plot’s so twisty, the settings are so various, the characters move in and out so much. But page 69 does contain a rant that pretty neatly represents Rainy.
“Look,” Blaine said. “People are mostly doing the best they can —”

(And Rainy says):

“Don’t do that. Don’t platitude me. People are mostly doing the best they’re willing to do, not the best they can. A person’s actual best is pretty damn good, but it’s a lot of work. So people find the maximum amount of work they’re willing to do and then they call that their best.”
She’s merciless in her honesty, cruel in her judgements. And God, how awful is it that she’s right?
